The question of death penalty has divided the people in two for a long time. This form of punishment was widely used in western nations in addition to the other world, but today it isn't that common in the west and many people see it inhuman. Should death penalty be one form of punishment for criminals?

Try to keep the discussion civilized and leave that "liberals are pussies"/"Conservatives are ignorant idiots" shit out of this thread: you can state your opinions without flaming and insulting.

There must be some sort of harsh punishment which does more than inflict bordom upon people by sticking them into prisons for all of eternity. However, it should only be saved for the highest of crimes. The death penalty should not be used for a one time killer, but for a serial killer or known terrorist.

a national government does not have the right to kill its citizens. keep them incarcerated for the rest of their life, yes, but not kill.

I'm all for it, if people commit that bad a crime, then they deserve nothing better than to be put to death. As regards, i would also keep the death penalty for serious crimes, and criminals such as rapists, abusers, and murderers should be given it. People that simply steel or drive and drive etc shouldn't be having with it. However, Dreadnought, you think not? Keeping these 'really bad' people alive has it's bad points. Firstly they are chances that they will get released or escape thus free to do again what they were put behind bars for, and also, the country (and your everyday tax payer) is paying for them to live (meals, water etc). If a person does that bad a crime that it is thought of to put them to death, then they shouldn't hang about thinking about it, they should get them over with. People i class as deserving this punishment are:

  • Murderers (this would include Terrorists and so on)!
  • Rapists
  • Abusers (this would include child molesterers and others that inflict massive amounts of physical or mental damage to another).

Edit: I Voted: Partially Agree

Actually, they do. They are the government, they create the laws that we live our lives by. They give themselves the right to take the lives of those that commit heinous crimes.

Suprise, suprise. I agree with the death penality. Part of me also thinks it should be extended to serial rapists and pedophiles. Those people are often incurably sick, a plague upon soceity. I don't want my tax dollars going towards their cable television.

No-one has the right to take away someone's life. Be it murderers or governments.

Yes we do. and we have been over all this before. It is not inhumane to kill a murderest raping scum animal. I'd take pleasure in it myself. No need to keep murderers and rapsist alive, no need at all.

I wonder as well. Why theese animals do the things they do. Should I pay for them to drink water and food after they took someones innocent life away from them? Once you take take a life you GIVE up yours. Maybe if/when a crime happens close to your home and affects you personally you might realise this simple fact. You passive folks have no idea about life, do you. Ohh the poor criminal lets feed and shelter him and make sure not to humiliate him for he still has human rights.:rolleyes: :lol: bwahahaha.

Wouldn't murdering a murderer make you a murderer? :naughty: And of course I dislike capital punishment. Sometimes it might be the right solution, but because we almost never can be able to find out when, it's better to be sure and not kill at all.
